MONOLINK RELEASES SECOND STUDIO ALBUM ‘UNDER DARKENING SKIES’ !

Classically trained, and with an instrument-focused musical upbringing, he has managed to carve a reputation as one of the most dynamic performing artists on the melodic techno circuit, tastefully straddling the fence between electronic producer and live singer-songwriter. Pre-order and pre-save here. Monolink Portrait Berlin, Kreuzberg, 2021

Incorporating the groove and essence of avant-garde electronic music production into his deeply introspective vocal creations, the Berlin-based artist now looks to transport listeners further into his own reflective realm of sonic exploration with his most thoughtful and complex body of work to date, as he prepares to take us Under Darkening Skies. Monolink’s second full-length musical opus, which follows on from the critically lauded release of his debut LP Amniotic back in April 2018, Under Darkening Skies features twelve exquisite new vocal-led compositions, including his internationally celebrated hit singles, Otherside and The Prey. Eventually it became the most diverse record I have made so far, influenced by a time of global social and economic uncertainty at an ever-increasing tempo of change, like a dark cloud approaching.”

Monolink – Under Darkening Skies is out now via Embassy One / Ultra Records (N&S America) / Sweat It Out (AU & NZ). Having established himself as one of the most unique solo live acts to emerge onto the global electronic music scene over the past few years, Monolink’s rapid rise to global stardom has been remarkable to say the least. Follow us on socials Speaking about the album, Monolink commented:

“Under Darkening Skies is an album that’s connecting different dots in my life, representing phases or moments I went through. I wanted to go back to writing actual songs again instead of adding vocals to a beat, which gave me the freedom to express more musical facets of myself. Under Darkening Skies – the eagerly anticipated sophomore long player from German singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Monolink – is out now via Embassy One, Ultra Records (N&S America) and Sweat It Out (Aus & NZ).

Julian Wassermann returns to Renaissance with ‘People’ EP + Video!

I can’t wait to play this one out in the coming months…”

Things then take a more soothing turn with title track ‘People’, which is the first of two vocal electronica offerings. ‘Resonator’ kicks things off with a serious bang as he explains, “It’s my version of peak time techno. Put another way, it makes complete dancefloor sense in the truest sense of the word. Buy / Stream link: https://lnk.to/REN21011D 

Follow us on socials Lastly, we need to point out the song-phobic need not worry as Julian kindly offers both as dubs too, “I’ve included dub mixes for DJs because I often prefer that myself when playing out,” he admits. So, extremely varied on the one hand, yet, as is the way with Julian, when considered as a whole, he manages to impart his amazing production skills and make the EP hang together. It’s quite simple in its arrangement, but has a menacing, modulated lead that grows in intensity. ‘People EP’ is four distinct cuts, spread across six mixes, that takes in both melodic and more traditional peak time techno and electronica / breaks. “I love breakbeat songs with emotions and playful melodies,” Julian continues, “from a creative point of view, I’ve really enjoyed the time lockdown has given me to explore wider genres I may not necessarily have delved into had clubs and gigging continued as normal.”

The EP concludes by flip-flopping between techno and breaks yet again with ‘Radio Problems’, an MH&T track that’s very much a continuation of ‘Komet’ from his debut Renaissance EP with its fusion of contemporary beats and retro sounding synths; and ‘Fallen Stars’, which is a more reflective electronica piece that draws down on its deep, haunting vocal.
